Old Fashioned Week: Bacon Old Fashioned

The next Old Fashioned Week cocktail riff is the Bacon Old Fashioned. And let’s be honest what isn’t better by adding bacon?! This Old Fashioned riff features a stunning mix of bacon flavour, maple syrup and coffee pecan bitters. I think I may be in love. I’m not really a whiskey drinker but this cocktail may convert me. Not just a great cocktail, you could even make the bacon-infused bourbon and coffee pecan bitters at home for maximum impact.

How to make a Bacon Old Fashioned
Ingredients
  • 60ml of Bacon Infused Bourbon
  • 10ml of Maple Syrup
  • 8 Dashes of Coffee Pecan Bitters
  • Orange Peel, for garnish
Method
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a glass filled with ice
  2. Stir to combine
  3. Add orange peel for garnish

If you’re making a batch of this cocktail, or just want to look like a pro, try making the cocktail in a mixing glass. Once you’ve stirred the cocktail, strain the cocktail into a glass using a julep strainer. To make it look even better, try serving the cocktail with an ice ball instead of regular ice cubes.
